That is a swan with beauty so soothing, oh! Dear

Never have I seen it before nor have I heard ever.

It is golden-plumed and has a sweet sound to match it

It seems he would be friendly if I were to catch it.

 

I wish I could touch it with my hands, friends dear.

If I could get hold of him I could play with him without fear.

It is not vicious, seems like a gentle soul; stay clear

-my friends, I will go to him, you don’t come near.
